“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I have been several times in this restaurant. It was a great deal in the past, but has obviously deteriorated in the last couple of months. We made a reservation via phone 3 weeks in advance. When we arrived there was no table reserved for us. Nevertheless, as the team knew that something went wrong we got a table somehow within a couple of minutes. The food was good as usual, but the menue hasn't changed for a long time. It has been been more or less the same for many months now. We are now also fed up of looking at the oversize TV screen and Zen TV and Yoga sessions while eating. This is not the environment for a restaurant that charges around 45-50,- €/person for 2 courses without drinks. The total bill - including water and wine - is around 100-150,- €.
The service was just all right, but less friendly than in the past and the waitress simply forgot one order. One can go to this retaurant, but it is definitely not worthwhile the good ranking anymore.

“Inattentive and confounding decor”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Admittedly it was cold in Cannes. So when were sat three meters from the automatic door at the restaurant we should have realized our dining experience would be interrupted with Arctic blasts every time a new guest arrived. The owners should have put up a curtain to shield the patrons. The dining room has potential but there is a projection screen in the wall with "zen tv" programmed which is this horrible pre-programmed crap that totally distracts from your dining experience. Do i want to see a yoga instructor on the beach while eating?On another wall is a big screen TV with advertisements for Facebook and the restaurant itself. It is crude and tasteless. The service was in attentive and the food mediocre. No one ever checked on us. The piece de resistance was when the waiter brought over these lamented dessert menus made of plastic. They were filthy and had pictures on them. Are you an upscale restaurant charging high prices for meat? Or a casual snack bar? In either case neither was well executed. There are so many better places to eat in Cannes. Don't understand the good ratings - go to Le Cannet and eat twice as good for half the price.

“Great food even better people!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I travel to Cannes for business and the apartment I stay at is just above Grill & Wines. One time I was travelling with a female colleague, and one of the owners carried her heavy bag up 4 flights of stairs! Needless to say, we went to Grill & Wines a lot, not just for the food, which is fantastic, but for the wonderful people.

“Excellent meat, and good value wine list”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The menu is short but to the point and the wine list has some good value options.
The steaks came perfectly cooked, with prompt but unrushed service. Slightly cramped tables, but very good value compared to other restaurants near by
